OCONOMOWOC — Noodles & Company is planning on opening a new location in the Pabst Farms Marketplace that is set to open this summer.

“We look forward to serving the Oconomowoc community and will share more about the opening in a few months,” said Noodles & Company Director of Communications Danielle Moore.

The Broomfield, Colorado based business offers a variety of types of pasta and noodles dishes from Wisconsin Mac and Cheese to Japanese Pan Noodles.

Noodles and Company currently has 459 locations nationwide, with 46 locations in Wisconsin, with six of those in Waukesha County.

Moore said Noodles & Company is beloved in the Waukesha area.

“We look to open new restaurants in locations where we think the business will do well, particularly in areas with strong daytime and evening traffic,” Moore said.

Oconomowoc Economic Development Director Bob Duffy said there has been continued activity in the Summit Avenue corridor because of its proximity to the interstate.

“As we continue to add residents, there’s a need for additional types of restaurants,” Duffy said.

The city has certainly continued to add restaurants, with Noodles & Company on its way, it will follow Taco Bell and Scramblers coming to the Summit Avenue corridor in the last six months alone.

Duffy said Noodles & Company has been looking at the community and just needed to find the right location; which it sounds like it has at the Marketplace where Qdoba, Jimmy John’s and MOD Pizza are.

“Oconomowoc’s continued growth is providing positive business attraction as it relates to restaurants and goods and services to the community,” he said.
